"The responsibility for delay is exclusively with my Brexiteer colleagues who did not vote for the deal, and have delayed the process further. In the last 24 hours Parliament has decisively rejected both her deal and no deal".

Using a threat of a lengthy extension to Article 50, she has made clear that her negotiated divorce deal is still on the table and seeks to push rebel lawmakers into supporting it, despite having had it rejected twice - in January by a historic margin, and again earlier this week, on Tuesday.

Hopes for a so-called People's Vote were dented on Thursday night when an amendment put forward by Independent Group MPs calling for a second referendum was heavily defeated in the Commons by 276 votes.

"While an extension of Article 50 is now inevitable, responsibility for that extension lies exclusively and squarely at the Prime Minister's door", he said.

MPs have voted against holding a second Brexit referendum this evening by a substantial majority of 249 votes.

HuffPost UK understands all of the frontbenchers, who all represent strongly pro-Leave constituencies, were told to quit after they were warned they faced the sack for going against the party line.

"All of us across this House now have the opportunity to work together to find a solution to the crisis the government has plunged us into". "That is what we were elected to do", Corbyn added.

Wells Fargo has shaken up its executive ranks, raised the minimum wage to $15 an hour and given millions to charity, he told them. The bank has paid billions of dollars in fines to regulators for consumer abuses in virtually every part of its business.

However, that vote was not legally-binding - and under current law the United Kingdom could still leave without a deal on 29 March.

But Europeans vote for a new European Parliament from May 23 to 26 and EU leaders say the United Kingdom must exit before then to prevent a legal challenge to the legislature's legitimacy.

If the vote is successful then she can ask for a "short technical extension" to Article 50.

A European commission spokesman said the vote was not enough and London had to choose between a deal or a no deal exit. The Brexit transition might cause chaos in the beginning as this would sever economic, legal, and political ties with the European Union due to the mutual dependence and close bond established by both parties.

May will also come under pressure to offer up a timetable for her departure, as a way of convincing Eurosceptics in her party they could replace her, before the crucial next stage of Brexit negotiations. To take no deal off the table, it is not enough to vote against no deal - you have to agree to a deal.

He added: "Presuming the European Union itself is willing to wait, the incompetence of all her opponents means that the British Prime Minister will be allowed to keep trying to do so".
